[defending Bicycle Thieves]
Mr. Superintendent, the film we saw tonight was... stupendous! Let me talk, let me talk. Through this garbage and this crap, yes sir, we recognise the true enemies of the proletariat: namely, the false defenders of grace, of poetry, of beauty and all the other hypocritical values of your bourgeois culture.

One of the most outstanding films about life,friendship,love and the unending magic of an exquisite thing called cinema.
Sorry for being much too lenient but in these perverse times where everybody is talking of global warming, please excuse me when I say that I just have wonderful praises for this great film. It is great on every front. What is the yardstick by which a great film can be measured ? A great film can be recognized by its inherent ability to make viewers shed some emotional tears and weep inconsolably. This is what this great masterpiece by Ettore Scola did to me. We all loved each other is such a pleasant film that it can be compared to a sweet lullaby. The ease with which the various dramatic events happen is a joy to behold. I am not really sure about this fact but I think that may be French master Claude Sautet must have been influenced by this film when he decided to make a similar masterpiece called "Vincent, François, Paul et les autres".Which one is the better film ? Watch both of them and find out for yourself.
